The KickStart is a solid-state over-energization power supply. It provides fast, repeatable energization of 24 VDC solenoids, including those on wrap-spring clutches. By reducing response time, cycle rates in high speed applications can be increased dramatically.

Optically-isolated logic input permits direct interface with PLC output modules and other logic-level components. No additional relays or switches are needed, so wiring is simplified and reliability is enhanced.

Timing of control input is not critical—input can be left ON without overheating the solenoid coil. The KickStart supplies a one-shot pulse to energize the load.




With a 24 VDC control signal on terminals 1,2, a solid-state switch closes and the built-in over-energization circuit supplies 150 V peak to the load. After the energy stored in the over-energization circuit has been transferred to the load, the circuit turns itself off and begins recharging for the next cycle.

The output switch incorporates a fast flux decay circuit to ensure rapid turn-off of the load. No protective components are needed with inductive loads.


1. Initiating contact may be any switch, transistor, photo or proximity sensor, or PLC output capable of switching 10 mA at 24 VDC. Current sourcing or sinking can be used.
2. Terminal 2 can be grounded.
3. If load requires 24 VDC after over-energization, use Regent’s PR11OE24.
